top right corner image
September 13, 2016

Time: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time

Location: Webinar

Description: Schools nationwide are using Early Warning Systems (EWS) to identify students who are beginning to fall off track for graduation and to plan interventions that will get them back on track. This webinar will focus on the unique risk factors faced by English learner students and how districts can remove obstacles and/or use early warning indicators to help them graduate successfully.

This interactive webinar will include polls and time for participants to ask the presenters questions about their specific English learner student populations and the policies and practices in their districts.

Research Alliance: This is a cross-REL event cosponsored by REL Northwest, REL Pacific, REL Southwest, and REL West. All four RELs are involved in research alliances focused on improving graduation rates and preventing dropouts through EWS.

Audience: The primary audience for the event is school and district staff members who are familiar with EWS but would like to learn about their utility with English learner students. Practitioners engaged in work aimed at increasing graduation rates of English learner students (even if they do not have experience with EWS) are also encouraged to attend.

Speakers: Sarah Frazelle, REL Northwest
Julia Gwynne, The University of Chicago Consortium on School Research
Nina Williams, Kent School District (WA)
Linda Cavazos, REL Southwest
Elizabeth Gongora, Sharyland Independent School District (TX)
